surface-mount (decorative) caps
Explanation:
'Opbouw' can also be used as an adjective to mean 'surface-mount' (such as an opbouwwandcontactdoos). My take is that the item (whatever) it is is secured to the structure with wood screws and the heads of the screws are finished with caps that stand proud of the surface.

sample ref:

[PDF] FAIRHAVEN D8 RECESS MOUNTED CABINET WITH ELECTRIC
D. 12 SMS/Wood Screws #10 x 2”. E. 25 Screw Head Caps. Limited Warranty One Year Term ... Press screw caps provided over the heads of the screws.
